College football rankings, Week 4: Arizona hovers heading into bye

The Wildcats are hovering around leading into a bye week.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats are a technical 32nd in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches polls heading into Week 4 of the college football season. UA has a bye before traveling to Seattle to face a top-20 Washington squad.

That'll be a tough and true first test of 2013.

The scheduling gods have done well for the Wildcats. The three nonconference games may be viewed as a lucky and cheap way to get to 3-0, but it truly should be considered a blessing. The Wildcats needed those three games to get their confidence up and the kinks worked out, especially at quarterback. As Jason Bartel wrote from the aftermath of Arizona's 38-13 win against UTSA on Saturday, B.J. Denker's role is only growing -- and it appears RichRod is going full bore with the senior as his quarterback.

Below are the complete, sortable AP and USA Today polls.
